Would love to show an image of the GTV6 but I cannot work out how to do it.

You Alfisti may be able to help me with some research.
CSCC have events at Spa and Nurburgring this year. The cars have to be pre 31st December 1979. Does anyone know if there were any GTV6s sold in the world before 1980? If you have any evidence that these cars were 'seventies' cars it would make my life easier with regards to gaining a race entry.
Any help greatly appreciated. Steve Griffin

There were a couple weren't there at Canberra. One of them had an Audi Quattro running (which year did Bartlett run the Camaro?), i think i've got a couple of them on tape...

Going by the #75 i'd say it's 1986, i think its the one Neil Allport won in his Mazda.

There were actually three rallysprints run for TV.

1984 They ran up at Blue Range with near stock standard Nissan Bluebirds. Winning car was given away as a prize to the public. Sponsored by JPS.

1985 Run very late in the year. They ran Pipeline both directions. Until I hunt down the photos stashed away I am not sure but believe this was the year Bartlett ran the Camaro. Ran it without the front airdam.

This was also the year that Allport ran in his Mazda and the Audi ran. The two photos below are of the Bond race car, and also the Greg Carr rally car that Greg ran the next year in the ARC.


1986 They again ran Pipeline and again were sponsored by Toshiba. The photo posted above is from the 1986 event.

By the way, Bond changed to #75 because that is what he ran in '87- an Alfa 75.


Bond in the race car 1985



Greg Carr in the rally car.

Thanks for that, some great photo's

Caroline O'Shaunnesy ran in one of them in Greg Carr's Alfa, perhaps that is who the photo is of?

Pretty sure the Bartlett Camaro year was different to the year Allport won

I have a JPS sponsored rallysprint from 1984 on tape somewhere, but it features a bunch of Group G rally cars (Stanza's, Mazda RX2, even a TR8), rather than a bunch of Nissan Bluebirds....

The car was homologated on jan.1 1981 as a GT first, so I'd say there's zero chance the car would be accepted.

The Nissans were the main reason for the rallysprint being televised. The Grp G cars were run as a secondary class. They sort of showed that the Nissans were a bit boring

The navigator in the Alfa at the Alpine was Fred Gocentas. I thought Caroline was in the Fiat.

No arguments there, i meant in one of the Canberra rallysprints Caroline had a drive of the Carr Alfa.

I'm going to have to go for a search now & find the footage I've got memories of a BDA Escort running in one as well, having a lose towards the end of its reverse run...

I have found the program for the rallysprint which featured the Allport Mazda and the Malcolm Stewart Audi, it lists the date of the event as March 22/23 1986.

Perhaps they ran in both years...i've not managed to find the videos of them yet

Peter Janson drove the Toy Shop Alfa in the 1986 rallysprint at Canberra as well, in the support event

Managed to dig out another shot from my archives.

This is one of the Jolly Club cars parked at the rear of the pits after the '84 TT. Suster/Cipriani?

Race result on http://homepage.mac.com/frank_de_jon...lverstone.html has Dagmar Suster/Romeo Camathias- DNF.

I can't make out whether it says Cipriani or Camathias on the car, but Marcello Cipriani isn't listed against any of the other Alfas at the TT as far as I can see...

Team-mates Lombardi/Francia in #55

Think there might be another pic of this on one of the links earlier in the thread, but it's the Ray Gulson car in unfamiliar warpaint for the 1986 Nissan-Mobil races in NZ- Gulson shared the car with Ed Lamont, the car wearing ANZ's white colours:

Incidentally, found this link on the same page- worth a look if it's not already been posted. Lots of GTV pics, including the Snobeck cars, the Franz Klammer car and plenty of rally action

As mentioned in both tihs thread and the '75' thread, the 75 took over from the GTV6 for the '86 season, however the new car was delayed and missed the early-season races. A few GTV6s still turned out though- notably a couple of Luigi cars at Spa, the Australian cars (Bond/Network Alfa, Ray Gulson etc), ARDT in a couple of early season races (BTCC Round 1 and Donington ETCC) and a few Italian entries at Monza- not sure who this is, but it's obviously one of the '85-season Jolly Club cars...

The name of Rufino Fontes popped up in the '75' thread as well, with some pics of a 75 Turbo he campaigned in Portugal in 1987- Here's his earlier GTV6, which apparently still survives

Fontes was Portuguese champion in the car in 1983- according to a thread on an Alfa forum, it's a Luigi car from 1982, raced by Fontes in Portugal during 1983-4
